Mbrascatu

Mbrascatu is a cross-pollination of numerous influences from spaghetti Western, Eastern European immigrant dance music, psych rock, and folk to create a unique blend of sounds and musicality. Along with bands like Calexico, Devotchka and Gogol Bordello, they infuse modern indie music with a global flavor. Mbrascatu was formed in 2010 in Portland, OR by singer-songwriter and guitar player Andrea Algieri. The group blends hypnotic rock grooves with energetic Italian vocal lines sung with group harmonies by a band of seasoned musicians. Mbrascatu bring an energetic vibe with their exotic rock n’ roll that has pleased packed audiences around the Pacific Northwest, the United States, and parts of Europe. A dynamic band that can escalate to a frenzy in the rock numbers and pull it all back to a whisper for their ballads. A group filled with great musicians with the stage presence to match.


Jimmie Herrod

With “a voice like a beacon of hope” (Seattle Times), vocalist Jimmie Herrod brings singular power and expressivity to his globe-trotting career as a singer, songwriter, and entertainer on stage and screen. Herrod first came to worldwide prominence as a finalist on the NBC nationally broadcast television show, “America’s Got Talent,” earning the rare “Golden Buzzer” recognition from actress Sofia Vargara and returning the following year on the AGT All-Stars series.

As a solo artist, Herrod has appeared to critical and audience acclaim with the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and with the symphony orchestras of San Francisco, Houston, and Oregon, including as a featured soloist for the globally televised PBS “Joni Mitchell Songbook” concert at The Kennedy Center with the NSO, where he shared the stage with musical luminaries like Renee Fleming, Lalah Hathaway, Raul Midon, and Aoife O’Donovan.

Traversing many musical styles and genres in many languages, including jazz, pop, funk, and his own original songs, Herrod has headlined concerts at the The Luxor Theater (Las Vegas), New Jersey’s South Orange Performing Arts Center, and Portland’s Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, and has since 2017 toured with world-pop band Pink Martini as a featured vocalist. With two EP’s under his belt – his debut “Falling in Love and Learning” and 2022’s “Elated” – Herrod’s singular style and unique voice is poised to make an ever larger impact in the world of music and entertainment.

Recent appearances include a star turn as Angel in the world premiere symphonic version of the musical “Rent” at The Kennedy Center, where his performance was lauded by Maryland Theatre Guide as “ebullient” and by Broadway World as “moving, textured, and sensitive,” and his 2023-24 season includes a return engagement with the Oregon Symphony, debuts with the Bozeman and St. Louis
Symphony Orchestras, and a planned solo tour.

Herrod is an alum of the Cornish College of the Arts and Portland State University.
